  • But what about the famous hymn: “We Three Kings”? Is the song wrong? 
  • Why did you decide to make this a picture book? 
  • What about the traditional names of the Wise Men: Gaspar, Melchior and Balthasar?  Are those accurate?   
  • Where do you believe these Wise Men travelled from and why? What does history tell us?
  • What is the star of Bethlehem? What did they see in the sky?
  • What is the significance of the gifts: gold, frankincense and myrrh? This is a further clue as to the origins of these wise men…
  • Why is it important to know the historical reality of the Wise Men—the Magi?

About Tasha Layton

Acclaimed BEC Recordings artist Tasha Layton celebrated her second consecutive #1 radio single with “How Far.” Penned by Layton, Keith Everette Smith, Matthew West and AJ Pruis.

 “How Far” follows Layton’s 2021 chart-topper, “Look What You’ve Done,” which reached #1 on Billboard’s Christian Airplay chart. Both songs are featured on the artist’s debut recording, How Far, released in May, and produced by GRAMMY® and Dove Award-winner Keith Everette Smith. Tasha Layton’s 2021 smash hit “Look What You’ve Done” reached the pinnacle of Billboard’s Christian Airplay chart and earned her recognition as one of the publication’s Top 5 female Christian artists of the year. She has been featured on ABC’s GMA3: What You Need To Know, discussing how past struggles have shaped her life and inspired her music; and Layton served as co-host of the 52nd GMA Dove Awards Pre-Telecast last year. Her six-song holiday EP This Is Christmas bowed in October and her guided prayer journal, “Boundless: Moving Freedom From Your Head To Your Heart,” also released last fall.

In 2020 Layton was first named one of Billboard’s Top 5 female Christian artists of the year on the heels of her breakthrough single “Into The Sea (It’s Gonna Be OK),” which was among the biggest hits at Christian radio that year. Prior to her solo career, Layton appeared on Season 9 of American Idol and spent four years as a back-up vocalist for pop superstar Katy Perry. A South Carolina native, her voice has been heard in productions for Disneyland and Cirque du Soleil; she has served as an instructor at the National Praise and Worship Institute at Nashville’s Trevecca Nazarene University; and Layton is featured in pro-audio company TC Helicon’s book, “The Ultimate Guide to Singing.”
